Description terminal service, if at all possible it would be desirable for interstate and intrastate bus lines to develop common terminal facilities here under one roof. Airline terminal facilities for weigh-in of baggage and checking of tickets should also be provided along with limousine, taxi, and helicopter service to the airport. Ideally, railroads should also be tied in for the convenience of travelers, but due to the fixed nature of their terminals and their distance from Downtown this is not practical in the foreseeable future. This center's location just south of the Civic Auditorium is as close as possible to the freeway access routes into the Downtown area, and within easy walking distance of Downtown hotels and motels, restaurants, and entertainment. Its close relationship with the Convention-Cultural Center and Visitor Center is most important. Merchandise Mart Salt Lake City, as a regional distribution center, serves as a meeting place for manufacturers' representatives and buyers for retail outlets of all kinds from throughout the region. A merchandise mart is proposed for this activity in light of their being no place at present except hotel rooms for the approximately 150 manufacturers'representatives permanently located in Salt Lake City. Such a building, which has been developed successfully on a similar scale in other regions, would provide permanent office space for the manufacturers' representatives, temporary office space for buyers, large exhibition room plus small display rooms, meeting rooms and a small auditorium. Its proposed location just south of the Transportation Center is convenient to hotels and motels and transportation, and also convention facilities since the convention hall exhibition space could possibly be used for large manufacturers'conventions and other special events. As part of the merchandise mart, a Decorative Center is proposed which would serve the region for the display of new materials and techniques in the decorative and building fields. Farmers' Market A farmers' market as here proposed would be the market place of the city. Besides the present growers' market function, it would contain many of the market place activities which can be seen in the Los Angeles market--a potpourri of produce, foods, trinkets, souvenirs, restaurants, displays, etc. , with colorful awnings, furniture, and people. A permanent roof would give protection and unity to the conglomeration of activities. Its location could be on the present site, within easy walking distance of Downtown hotels and motels and easily reached from the Convention Center area and all other parts of Downtown by means of the internal circulation system. -13-
